@Mcmahon_BearPig

Are you guys picking up Mario Golf? I was going to until I heard it only had 6 courses and was stripped of a lot of features from the previous games. Why do you think Nintendo is regressing so many of their games?

Connor Ewing

@Connoerewing

If a new Dead Space did happen, would you prefer it to be a sequel (either direct or just in the same universe as 1-3) or a complete reboot?

As a big Zelda fan, I have a secret to share: Majora’s Mask is the ONLY 3D Zelda game I’ve never finished.

What’s that one game that you guys have played before but always felt bad about not finishing?

Jorsh

With this pandemic, do you think the new Zelda game will end up getting delayed? When do you think we will actually see Breath of the Wild 2?
